Am I sick enough for you?

Today I read another "but you don't look sick" comment, and it really got my goat (fainting goat of course). The comment wasn't directed at me personally. Although I've heard it enough times over the last seven years, that it raised my hackles once more and had me yelling at the computer screen in defence of the person being attacked.

I'm still perplexed as to what sick looks like. Or what the threshold is as to when you're allowed to say you're sick? And who is the final judge?
